    Humanity, as explained by
    Life of Brian:

    Brian: "Look, you've got it all wrong - You don't need to follow me, you don't need to follow anybody; you've just got to think for yourselves... you are all individuals!"
    Crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Brian: "You are all different!"
    Crowd: "Yes, we're all different!"
    Random guy at the back: "I'm not!"
    [Random guy shooshed by the crowd]

    (Borrowed from sammyjopeters signature line - thank you ) :)

    I read this the morning & it caught my attention. I think I know the random bloke at the back of the crowd!
    I'm glad there are still some minds that are free & not shooshed by the mob.
    That's what I come here for - for the sheer pleasure of rolling around in those minds :)
    Lets celebrate ALL of them, & cherish our differences. As Terra said - it'd be a sad old world if Collingwood always won :)

    I come here to soak in the diversity nice to see Sammy again lots of interesting people , bumped the recycle thread and had a scratch in there and of course others we havnt seen for awhile .

    I hardly ever watch the footy now the suits have rooned it , toooo much politics and making money money money to drive the endless growth of the machine , I often wonder how many "Suits" are feeding of the machine they should get real jobs that produce something . Oops derailed the thread already . 8)

    Lets celebrate the suits too - at the risk of sounding overly buddhisty - because everybody regardless of their context wants to be happy.

    See Terra I put it back on the rails! Toot toot goes the thread train! LOL

    P.S I'm probably a suit as well but let's leave that flame-war for another thread, shall we?

    I'm happy to apply the same knowing that understands "there are no weeds" to people too. Or os kimbo recently put it: "Everything is Beautiful in it's own way." :)
